Khalid Mobin is the veteran axeman for Malay heavy metal band Rusty Blade .He picked up guitar way back in1976, though he had been keen to be a classical pianist initially. He was enlisted in the school brass band & combo band at a very tender age and won 1st prize in a Yamaha’s band competition. He had his first major show at the age of 17, playing at National Theatre with his band ‘Sarabande Lord Band’, together with his younger brother Malik Mobin on bass, Noorhangini on vocals & Aleem Varaderoo on drums, performing 2 songs-Child In Time & Gates of Babylon to a full house crowds, sharing the same stage with big names like Sweet Charity. It was a great honour for Khalid to be offered as Rusty Blade’s first guitarist when he met the founding band members (Bro Zan and Yusof Munir) at a local guitar showroom circa 1980. He went on the feature as a guitarist, songwriter, producer and arranger for the band with 4 albums-786 /Ikrar Perwira, Rintangan Hidup Dunia, Berat & Awas.
